Cleanings & Exams
We recommend that you visit us every six months, so we can monitor the health of your teeth and mouth. At your biannual appointments, we examine your teeth for plaque build-up or signs of other issues like gum disease. Our team will also take x-rays to ensure that we get a comprehensive look at your teeth. X-rays can show us signs of cavities, chips, cracks, and more. We utilize digital x-rays, which means that we get the images of your teeth almost immediately and can begin to develop a treatment plan right away when needed.
After your examination, we will clean your teeth thoroughly and polish them to a beautiful shine. You’ll leave our office with a bright, beautiful, healthy smile.
Crowns & Bridges
When your smile has suffered extensive damage or tooth loss, crowns and bridges can help restore your smile to full health and beauty.
- Dental crowns, also called caps, are used to restore the integrity of a vulnerable tooth following extensive decay or damage; often, these restorations are placed on the teeth following a root canal. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials—including metals, porcelain, ceramic, or even gold! For patients seeking a blendable restoration, we recommend those made from porcelain or ceramic so they blend right in with the surrounding teeth. We design crowns to fit perfectly, so your bite is not affected when we place a crown.
- A bridge is used to replace one or more teeth in a row. They literally “bridge” the gap created by missing teeth. The appliance is made from a series of crowns fused together—the outer crowns are constructed to secure the bridge in the mouth while the middle components, pontics, act as replacement teeth. Bridges can be supported by surrounding healthy teeth or by dental implants. If you’re missing teeth, our dental team will discuss your options and help you decide what is best for your smile.
For patients who are missing many or all their teeth, we offer dentures that allow you to get back to smiling, talking, and eating with confidence. Our offerings include both traditional dentures and partial dentures, and our team will discuss your needs and goals with you to determine the best option for you. Thanks to modernization in dentistry, your dentures will fit securely, feel comfortable, and look great.
At Stephen M. Huppert DDS, we don’t just treat adults. We see children of all ages and provide comprehensive pediatric dental care. From routine exams and cleaning to fillings and more, we’re here to help your child start their healthy smile journey early and maintain a beautiful smile for a lifetime.
Oral Cancer Screenings
During every routine exam, our team will do a quick oral cancer screening. When caught early, oral cancer is easily treatable, so we make sure to stay on top of your screenings. Our doctor will feel along your jaw and neck for any abnormalities, as well as check inside your mouth for any signs.
If you’re ready to schedule your appointment, call Stephen M. Huppert DDS, today. Our team looks forward to helping you smile.
